Question about 2006 Harley Davidson FLHX Street Glide
It does not do it all the time. Sometimes sporatically, other times it will do it at every stop. Tried another speedo, but it still shuts off. It also will rev up to 1500 rpm's sometimes, and then gradually back down to 1000.This also happens when slowing up to stop.
Hi Rick, high idle on fuel injected models can be casued by a faulty IAC valve located on the top front of the induction module. It has either failed electronically and needs to be replaced or mechanically getting gummed by contaminated engine blow by. You can try cleaning the unit by removing the air cleaner and backing plate, unplug, unscrew and remove the IAC. Using carb cleaner and " LOW " volume compressed air to clean the metal pintle and shaft that is spring loaded and has an operating length of just under 1 inch. Aventurous souls who did not heed the low air warning have launched pintle and spring into parts unknown. There is no guarantee this will work but worth a try since a new one is $50 Good luck

Let's start by taking the battery out and taking it to an automotive part store. Ask them to load test the battery for you. They'll usually do this for no charge. If the battery test good, put it back in the bike and make sure it's charged up fully.
Now, connect a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) to the battery. Red meter lead to positive, black meter lead to negative. Put the meter function knob on DC Volts, 20 volt or greater range. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. You should be reading 14.5-14.8 volts across the battery. If not, check the output of your alternator.
Unplug the regulator down at the cases just to the left side of your oil filter. Look down into the connector and you'll see two pins. Put your meter's function knob in AC Volts, 50 volt range. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Touch one lead of your meter (either lead) to one pin and the other lead to the other pin. You should be reading thirty volts or more.
If not, you probably need to replace the stator in your alternator, If you read 30 volts or more, replace your regulator.
Now, as to whether or not this will correct your speedo problem, I have absolutely no idea.

Voltage regulator is going/gone bad would be my first guess. Other possibilities include loose or corroded connection(s), sulfated battery, or failing stator (not likely).
Since electronic parts usually can't be returned, it might be worth it just to have a shop check it and give you an estimate. Even if you have to pay a diagnostic fee, if it's something as simple as a regulator, you can do the repair yourself and save some bucks.
